George Brough (April 21, 1890-1969), was a motorcycle racer, world record holding motorcycle and automobile manufacturer, and showman. He was known for his beautifully hand-crafted, powerful, and expensive Brough Superior motorcycles. His devotion as a racer and showman won over the hearts those who pursued and could afford the fastest and most prestigious motorcycles that money could buy.
In 1928, George Brough recorded the speed of 130.6 mph at Arpajon, unofficially the world's fastest speed on a solo motorcycle.
